Unfortunately, at this time in the United States, Ayurveda is not considered mainstream or allopathic medicine, but alternative medicine. Therefore, insurance does not cover Ayurveda costs at this time. Our Director, Dr. Jayarajan, is on the Board of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) - an organization devoted to preserving, protecting and promoting Ayurveda in the U.S. NAMA is currently working towards establishing licensure for Ayurvedic medicine so that insurance can accept Ayurveda costs for health seekers. *If you have a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account through your employer, you can use that account to pay for your Ayurveda appointments and products. Please check with your Human Resources department for further details on how to setup or use your HSA or FSA account at our Wellness Center.
The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda provides solutions to common health needs in today's world. It is a comprehensive system for lasting, longterm changes in health through natural methods that are sustainable for the individual and the planet. Not only does Ayurveda support the management of existing illness, it also prevents future illness. Ayurveda is called the "common sense science" because its elegant philosophy explains how our minds and bodies are integrated with our planet, and even the greater cosmos. Its framework outlines manageable changes which can significantly impact overall health for wellness, naturally.
